Thanks to its dual-fuel technology , the DuroMax XP13000EH delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 10,500W and a peak wattage of 13,000W. When propane-powered, it has 9975 rated watts and 12350 peak watts. Enjoying a noise rating of 74 dBA (Slightly louder than a shower), this generator can be started thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also to a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included) (battery included). Regarding its running time, the XP13000EH, with an 8.3 gallons fuel capacity can operate for around 8.5 hours at 0.5 load with a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.98 GPH) (fuel consumption is approximately 0.98 GPH). It can run for about 3.5 hours if you use propane (on a 20 lbs tank – propane consumption around 1.34 GPH). The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the XP13000EH is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<12%).
The control panel has 5 AC outlets: a 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI outlet, a 120V 30A (L5-30R) outlet, a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) outlet, and a 120/240V 50A (14-50R) outlet.Also, it has one DC outlet and a 5V USB port, which makes it easy to charge devices like cell phones and tablets.With an L5-30P to TT-30R adapter, this DuroMax generator’s L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect it to an RV.But it’s still not ready for an RV.The XP13000EH is also ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.If the power goes out, you can easily connect it to a breaker box and keep your home running.
The control center of the XP13000EH has a handy meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This helps you keep track of its status and activity.In addition to this information, a light lets you know right away if the oil level is too low.A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.For safety, the generator has an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, so you can use it without worrying.The DuroMax XP13000EH comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a number of accessories, such as battery charging cables, a tool kit, a funnel, and a propane hose.You can also buy a storage cover that is made by the company.
The DuroMax XP13000EH is 29 inches long, 30 inches wide, and 26 inches high.Together with its traditional, open-frame design, they support the generator and allow it to be raised above the ground.The design shown is great for the outdoors and other rough places.While the generator is considered to be technically ‘portable’ (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 234 lbs.But its wheel kit and folding handle make it easy to move once it’s on the ground, which makes up for its lack of maneuverability.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the DuroMax-XP13000EH compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
